  • America wouldn't be a country is we didn't break some laws

    There is an exception to virtually every rule. There are reasons to speed in an emergency situation. There are reasons to disobey a standing government because of a long train of abuses. Not all laws are made in good faith, with the best interest of the people they are supposed to protect.

  • Yes there are occasions when it is ok to break the law.

    The key word occasions and I don't mean big ones like murder or theft. Like jaywalking when there isn't a car anywhere on the road or some of the older laws that shouldn't even be on the books. There are situations which following the law exactly defeats the spirit of the law. That is the bigger question. Following the spirit of the law in general is more important than following all the specific laws exactly as written.

  • If the law is against your conscience, then it is.

    We are not robots. We have a moral sense of what is right and wrong, and each individuals conscience may be different. Just because a government official is telling people to do it, does not mean it's right for people to do. Therefore, if it's against what one believes in, then one may have to break the law.

  • Sure it is.

    The question is almost asinine. Lots of lawbreakers are revered, even in our government mandated schools, such as our founding fathers and Harriet Tubman, just to name a few. The assertion that it is always wrong to break the law is an appeal to authority. Unless evidence is presented to justify a law, like not raping, then the law doesn't have any logical backing.

  • Yes, but within reason

    Laws are in place to keep us safe, and I do think that everybody should respect the law. That being said, there are situations wherein breaking the law is excuseable. One example would be speeding to the hospital when your wife is in labor. Another example might be using violence in self defense. Most police officers (in the case of speeding) or courts (in the case of self defense) make exceptions for culpability in such cases.

  • Yes yes yes

    If the government passed a law saying you are now slaves of the government. Not only is it your right to break the law, but it is your duty as an American or a Citizen of any free country to do so. Remember the People created the government and it is the People's duty to make sure laws passed by their servants(the government) are not only within their(the government) rights under their Constitution(s) but are also enacted so as not to infringe on any other rights protected.

  • Breaking the law is good

    It is okay to break the law if your personal safety is at risk and or if it is an emergency. Other then that the law is what it is and you can't change it. I need more words I'm adding in radom ones like pie is cheese or food

  • Well you can Sometimes

    In an event of an emergency, you can break the law such as a person trying to murder you, or if it is something like a cop is chasing a robber they are a loud to speed. The rest of this is simply because to reach the world limit I know the grammer is bad but pie is cheese

  • It really depends on what the law is

    If it is a law like, no bikes on the sidewalk and your on a busy street, you can break it. But if its something like underage drinking or drug use then absolutely not. It also depends on where, why, and if what is happening is an actual emergency or not.

  • Nope, nope, nope

    By the government breaking the law, people will start doubting the reason as to why they were set from the start. The laws are there to hold people back and show their limits as a human being and as a citizen of a bigger society. If the government, being the people we look up to when it comes to politics, were to break the law, what would hold Americans as to not follow their lead? Everything comes with its circumstances. One decision, especially one this big, will always hold multiple risks.

  • No probably not.

    The law is not made to be broken. It is made to stop certain things from happening like stealing, killing etc. Take Robin Hood for example. He stole from the rich to give to the poor. Undoubtedly, his intentions were good. But the matter of his religion remains. The early Robin Hood was a catholic (at least in irony) and The Bible says 'Thou must not steal'. Also the law is the law. So no. Even if your meaning was good, it is still against the law.

  • Don't break the law! However...

    If one's family was killed and the criminal was not punished correctly, I would go as far to say that one who commits revenge would be in the right, in extreme circumstances. But ultimately I believe that the laws are placed in society for a reason and therefor should be respected.

  • No one should have the right to break a LAW, especially the people who initially enforced it upon us.

    By the government breaking the law, people will start doubting the reason as to why they were set from the start. The laws are there to hold people back and show their limits as a human being and as a citizen of a bigger society. If the government, being the people we look up to when it comes to politics, were to break the law, what would hold Americans as to not follow their lead? Everything comes with its circumstances.
